MANILA, Philippines — The Makati Regional Trial Court (RTC) does not object to the Sandiganbayan’s move to transfer alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles to the female dormitory of Camp Bagong Diwa.

Sandiganbayan third division Associate Justice Samuel Martires on Monday said the anti-graft court received a comment from the Makati RTC Branch 150 interposing no objection to the transer of Napoles to the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) female ward in the Bicutan jail.

“Makati RTC issued comments interposing no objection to transfer of Napoles to BJMP,” Martires said in a text message.


Napoles was ordered detained by the Makati RTC hearing her case for serious illegal detention involving her former employer and principal whistleblower Benhur Luy.

But the anti-graft court’s third division issued a resolution ordering Napoles’ immediate transfer to Camp Bagong Diwa as she faces separate charges of plunder and graft over the pork barrel scam.

The court had said Fort Sto. Domingo in Laguna where Napoles is detained is not a detention facility for those facing trial.

Napoles’ camp said they are confused which court order to follow on the alleged scam mastermind’s detention place.
